Paragraph about LaTeX equation editor
Also in April, Section leadership selected winners of the three Section awards from the numerous highly qualified nominees. Congratulations to Mary Miller, recipient of the Alice Hamilton Award; Susan Moirs, recipient of the Loren Kerr Award; and Margaret Keith and Jim Brophy, recipients of the International Award. I hope many Equation editor Section members will be present at the November OHS Section awards luncheon to meet and recognize Mary, Susan, Margaret and Jim for their contributions in protecting workers from health and safety hazards. Thanks to the awards committee for its hard work and support of the awards.
Nominations for Section leadership appeared in the May issue of The Nation's Health. You will receive your ballot in June. Please have your voices heard and be sure to complete your ballot.
Membership recruitment Scientific software continues to be a priority for our Section. An article in this newsletter tells of the efforts of the Section task force on recruitment strategies, with the goal of restoring our Section membership to the numbers of several years ago. As I noted in the previous newsletter, Section membership has fallen by nearly 33 percent since 1992. The task force challenges each current member to "act locally" with a onetoone effort to bring one colleague or student into the Section before the end of the year. The 128th APHA Annual Meeting in Boston, Nov. 1216, will be a great opportunity to engage potential members in the activities of the Section.
